Parents

Exam Information

Parents, you may be getting a phone call stating that your student was absent for one or more classes. This may happen a few days throughout the month of May, please don't be alarmed by this as it will be modified.
When students are out of class for testing (EOCs, AP exams, and IB exams) they will be marked absent from their traditional classes. Once we get the attendance from each testing room, all students that were present for testing that day will have their attendance coded as TST in focus, meaning they are excused from that class due to testing. 

Also, as our students have started taking their AP exams at PHS, please make note of the start times of each AP exam. College Board does assign the start times of the exams and we are required to administer at the time they have provided us with.

With that said, the morning exams begin at 8:00 am. Please be sure your student is on time!

More importantly, the afternoon exams do not begin until 12:00 pm. Most exams are around 3 hours long and when we include the directions, breaks, passing out and picking up materials, almost every exam will go past 3:10. For days that your student will be AP testing in the afternoon, please know that they will be getting out of the exam past 3:10. A lot of our underclassmen ride the bus so it is important to plan for a different ride home that day other than the bus. 

ib and ap exam proctoring

Students in the IB program will be taking AP and IB exams in order to receive college credit from May 3rd -May 24th. We are in desperate need for parents and family members to help proctor these exams. Please sign up for a time slot for this extended exam period. The IB program has been fortunate to pay for these exams without charging the students. However, we need enough volunteers to proctor the exams and are asking for your assistance. To sign up, please see the link below and pay close attention to the exam and location as we have exams at the University of West Florida, the PHS Auditorium, and in the classroom above the PHS gym. Additional instructions will be sent once you sign up.

 

Lastly, please be sure to not sign up for an exam your child is taking. 

Thank you!
